Abstract: The poems included in this thesis pay homage to John Dowland (1562-1626), the Elizabethan lutenist and composer, to whose music the King of Denmark's court once danced. The poems in general address themselves to those moments when people decide to dance and sing and attempt a reconciliation between activity and sleep, allowing the past and the present to swim in one voice. Both the poems and the fiction give expression to that special force which is exerted on the moment by the past.
